'Building Dialogues in the Americas'
The International Congress of Americanists has the longest interdisciplinary tradition of studies on this subject. It has been convened uninterruptedly since 1875 (when the first ICA was held in Nancy, France), with venues alternating between the Americas and Europe. Originally organized every two years, since 1976 the ICA is being held every three years. In the last two decades, congresses were held in the Netherlands (Amsterdam 1988), United States (New Orleans 1991), Sweden (Stockholm-Uppsala 1994), Ecuador (Quito 1997), Poland (Warsaw 2000), Chile (Santiago 2004), Spain (Seville 2006) and Mexico (Mexico City 2009).
Americanist scholarship is marked by a vibrant diversity of ontological, epistemological, and methodological questions. Since its inception, Americanists have gathered at ICA meetings to discuss empirical and normative scholarship, liberal and conservative politics, positivist and post-positivist perspectives, as well as activists and theoretical approaches, among other things. While these specializations often have been artificially separated, we aim to facilitate sharing of insights, questions, methods and viewpoints that could foster dynamic dialogues.
This Year the LINGUIST List hopes to raise $67,000. This money will go to help
keep the List running by supporting all of our Student Editors for the coming year.

The LINGUIST List is under the umbrella of Eastern Michigan University and as
such can receive donations through the EMU Foundation, which is a registered
501(c) Non Profit organization. Our Federal Tax number is 38-6005986. These
donations can be offset against your federal and sometimes your state tax return
(U.S. tax payers only). For more information visit the IRS Web-Site, or contact
your financial advisor.
Many companies also offer a gift matching program, such that they will match
any gift you make to a non-profit organization. Normally this entails your
contacting your human resources department and sending us a form that the
EMU Foundation fills in and returns to your employer. This is generally a simple
administrative procedure that doubles the value of your gift to LINGUIST, without
costing you an extra penny. Please take a moment to check if your company
operates such a program.
Thank you very much for your support of LINGUIST!
